So my awesome wife ,on a whim, decided to buy me a pickup. Mind you, she has no idea what a pickup is or does (other than its something for a guitar), but saw a Seymour Duncan Custom (TB5) in my Amazon wish-list and decided just buy it for me. Kinda like buying flowers for someone just to be nice Anyway, I just got it soldered in to my ESP strat and I gotta say, it sounds pretty sweet. It replaced a Custom 5 (TB14) which is the exact same pickup just with an A5 magnet instead of the Custom's ceramic magnet (I didn't have the heart to tell her she could have just bought me a magnet ). My first thoughts are that its a little brighter and not so "vintage-y" if that makes any sense.
